“I’m three and you’re four,” the future Queen, then a child, imperiously informed her sister. The younger girl, not understanding this reference to their position in the succession, proudly countered, “No, you’re not. I’m three, you’re seven.”

Yes, say goodbye to the ordinary. It’s rapidly receding in the rear-view mirror of your life. Say hello to the real world of The Crown. The audacious, epic and hugely expensive The Crown. A walk there? Is there ever. A walk like no other.

For over a year four top-flight Blue Badge Guides – one of them the author of Royal London – have read memoirs, diaries, letters, biographies, histories, etc. Have run their dragnets deeper and deeper through this world. They’ve drawn on personal experience – several London Walks guides have been inside, met the Queen and Prince Philip. One has a contact who worked on the series. Result: a fireworks show of snap-into-focus moments. You suddenly see and understand the geography of these places. See into them. Tell-tale details that weren’t on the screen. Which royal lived where in Clarence House. Who was one floor up? How did they communicate? Which side of Buckingham Palace was Group Captain Peter Townsend’s office on? Why was that important? Who was his neighbour? Riveting stuff. And embarrass de richesse: there are also some stunning Darkest Hour (Churchill) moments.

A crown is a hat that lets in the rain…



The meeting point is just outside the Green Park exit (by the fountain) of Green Park Tube.



If you can’t make one of the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, public Mountain Building & Meteorites in the City of London walks it can always be booked as a private tour. If you go private you can have the THE CROWN walk – or any other London Walk – on a day and at a time that suits your convenience. We’ll tailor it to your requirements. Ring Fiona or Noel or Mary on 020 7624 3978 or email us at and we’ll set it up and make it happen for you. A private London Walk – they’re good value for an individual or couple and sensational value for a group – makes an ideal group or educational or birthday party or office (team-building) or club outing.


A private London Walk makes a fab gift – be it a birthday or anniversary or Christmas present or whatever. Merchandise schmerchandise (gift wrapped or not) – but giving someone an experience, now that’s special. Memories make us rich.


Don’t just take it from us.
